They also can offer Portuguese cooking workshops (for a small fee). This camp is being created to invite you to explore another beautiful and more hidden part of Portugal.

Why you’ll love Rapture's permaculture eco surf camp

Their surf camp offers a perfect balance between a relaxed holiday and a new opportunity for you to learn and work on several sustainability practices, especially permaculture. The activities they run on-site are based on environmental concerns, and they aim to pass this type of knowledge to all guests that visit them. The surf camp location also offers amazing views within a short walking distance, and the natural beauty that surrounds the area will make you feel astonished and wanting to come back every summer!

Surf lessons for beginners and intermediates

No matter if you have stood on a board once or twice before, you plan all your travels around surfing the world, or you want to experience the feeling of riding a wave for the first time, your local surf guides know every break and will take you to the one that suits your level and offers perfect conditions for that day.

The staff will show you how to successfully pop on the board, how to progress from whitewater to green waves, and how to enhance your existing skills, taking you from riding to ripping.

At this surf school, they have a selection of boards that you can hire from their friendly staff. These include twin fins, longboards, and thrusters. With this variety you can surf everything from a ripple to overheard barrels, switching up boards as the conditions change.

Perfect summer with mellow and fun waves

Milfontes is a village located in the western coast of Alentejo in Portugal. Due to its prime location, it offers friendly enjoyable waves that can be surfed by beginners and intermediates. The surf in this area is consistent throughout all the summer months, offering those typical easy mellow waves from the south of Europe.

The price includes daily transportation to the surf spots of Malhão and Furnas, depending on the tides and surfing conditions, so you can get the best cruisy fun waves on Costa Vicentina. The area and beaches are usually uncrowded, which makes this location a perfect spot to give your first steps on surfing. The waves in Milfontes are also very suitable for improving your surfing experience as an advanced beginner or intermediate.
